"'Helen Field Fischer' The lady and the Iris" by Robert Jensen, ROOTS
Spring '92 p. 35

"What's In A Name? Alice Harding" by Anner Whitehead, ROOTS Spring '99 pp. 3-4

I also did a short article featuring Minnie Colquitt, 'The Lady - The Iris'
ROOTS Spring '97 p. 13 and 'The Lady and the Iris' (Gibson Girl) was
published in a Reblooming Iris Recorder that I can't lay my hands on at
